Very good 8.0
We liked the location, staff, welcome, going the extra mile in service, the villas and grounds, no children, no rowdy clients, welcoming breakfast provisions. There wasn't anything significant that we didn't like.

This place truly is a slice of paradise. Beautiful set up an in an amazing location. Snorkeling right out front is some of the best on the island. Awesome staff who are extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn't be better.

A superb facility with the most amazing staff. Right on the water's edge in lovely manicured grounds.

Exceptional 10.0
The Royale Takitumu is a great get away. Staff is super friendly, location is fantastic and the rooms are perfect. The only negative to the entire place is a lack of any restaurant facilities, however there is a fair amount around the area to make up for that. The beach and lagoon are very swimming friendly and great for just lying around. The hotel has paddleboards and kayaks so you can just lazy in a hammock or paddle around the lagoon all day long.

Excellent place to stay!
Tim and Lucille and their team were excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. We had a garden view Bure and really enjoyed it. We especially appreciated the kitchen and the ability to self cater. The pics don’t do the Bures justice, and a works program is under way lifting things to an even better level. The location is great with some dining options (Little Poly/Charlie’s) within walking distance and a little convenience store nearby. The snorkeling off the beach is some of the best on the island. We had a hire car for the first 3 days, and then used the clockwise/anti-clockwise bus thereafter, which was really good. Just wave it down and let the driver know where you want to go. This was the perfect place for our stay.
